Reflections on Rumi - Silence

This silence, this moment, every moment, if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There's nothing to believe. Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty. Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, 'Be more silent.' Die and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign that you've died. Your old life was a frantic running from silence. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence.


So Beautiful. Death and Silence.

Nothing whatsoever to add :-)

What a great quote. Thank you!

Silence. Emptiness. What was there before God said "let there be....". The unborn, the uncreated. Out there. Within. Surely it is in silence that all these things come together.

Thank you.
